We collect your Identifiable Information if you visit our Website and register as a User or a Member, purchase products, obtain or request information regarding our products or services, or otherwise communicate with us about our programs. The Identifiable Information we collect about you can include name, address, telephone number, e-mail address, credit card number and expiration date, password, purchase history, IP address, what Websites you come from, which pages are visited at this Website, and information about online activities that are directly linked to them. This information may be merged with other information you may provide us in other manners.
How we use the information
We will collect and use your Identifiable Information to send you information on our organization, events, issues and activities we think you may find of interest; render services to you; respond to your inquiries; market and sell to you products, programs, and services offered by us; and market and sell to you products, programs, and services offered by our business partners. From time to time, we may also use your information for market research purposes. In addition, we may use Identifiable Information to conduct other legitimate business activities, such as protecting the security of the Website and our networks, guarding against potential liability, engaging in debt collection, responding to a court order or subpoena, preventing fraud, complying with law, and complying with a legally permitted inquiry by a government agency or regulator.
If necessary for the purposes mentioned above, we may transfer your Identifiable Information to third parties, including our business partners, and these third parties may use your Identifiable Information for such purposes.
If our Website allows you to purchase products or services online, your Identifiable Information may be used to complete any transactions you enter into, including PayPal, and credit card processing.
Intrasite Messaging System
Our site contains an Intrasite Messaging System through which you can contact other Registered Users and Members electronically. Your message will be sent to the e-mail address they provided to our site, but you will not be given their e-mail address. The same is true if they contact you through this system.
We respect your choices on what information you wish to receive from us. Certain e-mails sent to you will contain an unsubscribe link. You can use this link to request what types of information are sent to you and to unsubscribe from all information. However, if you are a Registered User or Member, unsubscribing from all information will not prevent other Registered Users from contacting you via our Intrasite Messaging System. In order to stop this messaging, you must contact us to delete your profile.
Unsubscribing will also not remove your Identifiable Information from lists maintained by our business partners or other third parties we may have sent your information to as allowed by this policy. You should contact these third parties directly if you have any questions or concerns regarding their use of your Identifiable Information.
Our use of “cookies” and other computer information
As is the case with many sites, when you visit our site and complete a registration form, we will place a “cookie” on your computer, which helps us identify you more quickly when you return. Cookies are small pieces of information stored by your browser on your computer’s hard drive and are used in website system administration to keep track of movement of an individual from one screen to another. We will use “cookies” alone or in conjunction with other devices described below, to understand how you arrived at our Websites, to determine which pages or information you find most useful or interesting at our own Websites, and to make choices about how to deliver the most relevant marketing messages about our products to you. This information may also be used by our staff to detect and resolve Website problems and to assist with customer support concerns.
Most Web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually change your browser settings to prevent accepting a “cookie” offered by a Website.
Our approach to data security
To prevent unauthorized access to your Identifiable Information, we have put in place physical, electronic, and managerial procedures. We will use various electronic means to keep information transferred over the Web as secure as generally available technology reasonably permits.
Our commitment to children’s privacy
We recognize the importance of protecting the privacy of children. For this reason, we do not collect or maintain information from children we know are under 18.
How can you access or correct your information?

Plankinton Ave, Suite 425, Milwaukee, WI 53203. Reasonable steps will be taken to verify your identity before granting access or making corrections to your Identifiable Information.
